Dates: 24 – 25 August, 2011

The Energy Price Risk Practitioner Series are designed to provide participants with an understanding of pricing, risk management, asset valuation and derivatives within the energy markets.
“Advanced Energy Price Risk Management & Hedging,” permits a deeper but still accessible analysis of issues covered in the first module, including methods and analyses, as well as extensions into additional areas of price risk assessment and management.
For example, the “Advanced” module permits understanding the relationship between crude-oil prices and inflation, the optimization of risk management at the corporate level, a deeper understanding of volatility, extrapolation of longer-dated futures prices (for valuation of long-dated assets) and additional measures of Value-at-Risk.
